Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Polis statement on Trump administration’s stance on recreational marijuana
Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) released the following statement after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer suggested that the Trump administration will step up enforcement of federal laws against recreational marijuana.    “The President has said time and again that the decision about marijuana needs to be left to the states,” Polis said. “Now either the President is flip-flopping or his staff is, once again, speaking out of turn, either way these comments leave doubt and uncertainty for the marijuana industry, stifling job growth in my state.  The public has spoken on recreational marijuana, we’ve seen it work in Colorado, and now is the time to lift the federal prohibition.”   Following the November election, 95 percent of Americans now live in states or territories that permit, to varying degrees, legal access to medical marijuana and/or cannabis derivatives, with even more states considering expanded access this year.  Additionally, nearly
Polis to welcome DREAMer to Trump’s Joint Address
Washington: Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., will welcome a DREAMer to President Trump’s Joint Address to Congress as an example of inclusivity and diversity. Oscar Juarez-Luna moved to United States with his family from Mexico when he was a young child.  Oscar grew up only knowing the United States as home, and even wanted to serve the country in the military.  When he tried to enlist, he learned he was unable to do so because he was undocumented.  Soon after, Oscar pursued a degree in mechanical engineering, and has grown into an advocate for other immigrants who he says are ‘left in the shadows.’   Today, Oscar is a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) beneficiary, like 750,000 other young people in the United States.  Through DACA, his deportation has been deferred, and he has obtained a permit to work legally.  Oscar would lose that permit if DACA is revoked. “From when I was a young child, I have only known America as home.  I love
Polis statement on Attorney General Jeff Sessions
Washington:  Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., gave the following statement about Attorney General Jeff Sessions today: “Every day, more and more evidence is discovered about the dangerous ties between the Trump campaign and administration with Russia.  The development involving Attorney General Jeff Sessions is gravely concerning.  Obviously, Jeff Sessions is not the best person to investigate Jeff Sessions, and I am pleased that he is finally recusing himself from investigations involving Russia and the Trump campaign.  In addition, if Sessions is found guilty of perjuring himself during his Senate confirmation hearing, he should resign.  Americans deserve to have people of only the highest level of integrity leading the Department of Justice, and now more than ever, we need a 9/11-like, non-partisan, independent commission to investigate any forms of collusion,” Polis said.
Polis counters Trump’s call for a new office to investigate immigrants who commit crime
Today, Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., announced that he is planning to start the Saved by American Immigrants National Taskforce or “SAINT” to collect stories of immigrants - both documented and undocumented - who have positively contributed to U.S. society through heroic or lifesaving acts.  There are many Americans who are alive today only because of the heroic acts of immigrants who saved their lives.  Watch the complete announcement here.  Polis started the taskforce in response to President Trump’s announcement in his Joint Address that he would create the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement office, or VOICE. “President Trump was wrong when he insinuated immigrants are a greater threat to public safety than American citizens.  This fear is misplaced and perpetuated by ‘alternative facts’ or lies.  In actuality, immigrants are much less likely to commit crimes than people born in the United States.  The truth is that hard working immigran
